Tunde has been the Chairman of Makomborero’s UK Board of Trustees since 2008 when he joined the charity. He has witnessed its unique evolvement and rapid growth over the past six years, and is very excited about its future.
Although born in the UK, most of Tunde’s formative years (schooling and working) were in Nigeria where the barrier of poverty to further education was readily apparent; and so he has a deep appreciation of the challenges Makomborero seeks to address. Furthermore he has a personal affinity to Zimbabwe as a country, believing in its huge potential, especially with its people. His philosophy is, “no matter the magnitude of the problems facing the world, addressing it ‘one life at a time’ makes it just that bit better”.
Tunde is a qualified architect, and has public service experience working in contract management in the employment and transportation sectors. He is married with two daughters, and loves writing, reading and following Spurs.
